By Sarah Moran 3 April 2019
Brace yourselves for some wicked, glorious fun as the multi award-winning Matilda The Musical makes its debut in Hong Kong later this September at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.

Born of the beloved 1988 book by genius storyteller, Roald Dahl, Matilda The Musical follows the precocious five-year-old Matilda, who loves reading and learning, but is suppressed by her loathsome TV guzzling parents. Matilda’s world is thrown into disarray when she starts a new school, run by the fearsome Headteacher Miss Trunchbull – a cruel authoritarian who loathes children. Matilda finds solace in the library, in a world of her imagination and creation, and befriends Librarian, Mrs Phelps, and her lovely class teacher Miss Honey. Together, Mrs Phelps and Miss Honey give Matilda the confidence to embrace her special gift and individuality needed to reclaim her life. Combining a nifty script, clever lyrics, playful tunes, ingenious staging, and Roald Dahl's signature wit and naughtiness, this musical adaptation of Matilda inspires and delights audiences both young and old. Tickets are already on sale so hurry and grab yours now! Matilda The Musical, September 20 to October 6, Lyric Theatre, Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, 1 Gloucester Road, Wan Chai

Staff writer

Born and raised in Hong Kong to expat parents, Sarah grew up as your typical third-culture kid, caught between two worlds. As someone who is nosy (or just curious) and loves the written word, there was never any other career that appealed to her as much as journalism. When she’s not busy on her mission to find the line between not enough coffee and too much coffee, you can find her exploring the city or getting stuck in a good book.
